2015 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey "Perrieres" Meursault 1er Cru

SKU #1331707 94-97 points Wine Spectator

 and the stony, linear Les Perrières, hinting at peach, yet more floral and mineral, with terrific energy.(BS)  (2/2017)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 Notes of smoky mineral reduction and acacia blossom lead to highly energetic and even more mineral-driven middle weight flavors that arguably possess the finest mouth feel in the entire range. The beautifully long, tightly wound and dry finish is like rolling small stone around in the mouth and this is textbook Perrières.  (6/2017)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières has a crisp, wet stone and flinty bouquet that gains complexity as it aerates in the glass. There is wonderful detail here and impressive focus. The palate is crisp and taut with a killer line of acidity, just the right amount of salinity and there is impressive complexity and mineralité running all the way through to the finish. There is a tangible sense of confidence on this Les Perrières; it is one of Pierre-Yves Colin's best contributions to the 2015 vintage. This is superb.(NM)  (2/2017)

94 points Vinous

 Very pale color. Very expressive aromas of pineapple, menthol, crushed stone and white flowers; more open than the Meursault Les Genevrières. Opulent, thick, tactile wine with unexpected sucrosité as well as near-painful intensity to its citrus fruit, peach and floral flavors. Sharply delineated but with plenty of baby fat to buffer its underlying minerality. Colin told me he normally prefers his Genevrières in very warm vintages like 2015, but admits that this wine is surprisingly open today. Will it shut down in bottle?(ST)  (9/2017)

93 points Decanter

 From Les Perrières Dessous, the lower part of this de facto grand cru, this opens with a reserved and typical bouquet of lemon oil, crushed stones and struck match. On the palate the wine has good freshness and concentration, but needs some time to come together and find its focus, though of course its élevage was by no means complete when it was tasted.Drinking Window 2022 - 2045.(WK)  (2/2017)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Chardonnay

- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
Specific Appellation:

Meursault

- The town of Meursault is a prosperous village, with a Gothic town hall and narrow winding streets. It produces a small amount of red wine, but is justly famous for its whites. Although it has no Grand Cru vineyards, its Premiers Crus are justly famous, particularly Charmes, Poruzots, Perrières and Genevrières. A good Meursault has concentration, grip and backbone, in addition to its soft and rich fruit.
